New Extended battery?!?!
Any ever heard of this battery manufacturer before?
Amazon.com: ProdiCell Premium 1600mAH Slim Extended Battery for HTC Inspire 4G and Desire HD: Cell Phones & Accessories

It would be nice if this actually was 1600mAH. From the only review, I'm skeptical. The reviewer writes "this battery worked just as well as the original battery that came with the phone." This makes me feel like this person didn't experience extended battery life.

I guess the only thing to do is to wait until that battery starts to ship. I don't think we will have to wait long until more batteries are available. The Inspire is one of two 4 g phones from AT&T so it will be a popular phone, especially at its price.

All those are getting terrible user reviews all over the place. Some say they only perform slightly better or even worse then the stock battery. I dont know yet about this battery. Its going to take me a few days to see how this battery does.

Please keep us informed guys!! In two days I will order my Inspire. I am trying to get ahead of the game by looking at all the battery saving tips and looking for extended batteries. I am a light user that wants to be a heavy user.... (chalk it up to me being a BB user with serious Android envy!)
Anyway, I saw the following:
ProdiCell Premium 1600mAH Slim Extended Battery for HTC Inspire 4G, Surround, and Desire HD- It has 5 reviews for 5 stars.... but the reviews seem either contrived or posted by techno-challenged people.
No Brand given 1600mAh. Reviews again are kind of weak.
Anyway, I joined this forum because alot of you guys are WAY more savvy than I am, so i am very interested to see if these "extended" batteries do anything.
Thanks in advance guys!!

I've seen this battery on Amazon as well, but the reviews struck me in a different light. It really seems like people who work for that company wrote those reviews. I think two of those reviews were up before the battery started shipping out. I understand that it's possible someone got these batteries before they started shipping out from Amazon, but it smells fishy to me.
So far, i have this battery for about a week now. I use this phone as my work phone, so my display is pretty bright, i send alot of texts and emails out and am on the phone quite a bit. So these stats for me are pretty good.
I pulled the phone off the charger this morning around 9:30am, it is not about 4:30pm. I have had ab out 6 or 7 calls, average about 10-20 min each. About 50 texts, not alot of emails today. Regular surfing of my applications, facebook, tapatalk and whatnot. Brightness at about 75% full. I have a live wallpaper running in the background too. So far, i would normally be at about 40% battery or even less, i am at 60% so far.
I would def say that there is a marginal increase in this new battery, and so far no complaints. If anything else changes in the battery i will post it up in here. But else wise, as of right now, i would def recommend this battery to everyone.

Yeah, it helps.
I've also had this battery from Amazon about a week now. Not going to say that it provides anywhere near the battery life that the iPhone 4 I just came from did, but it does leave me with about 20% more at the end of the day over what I was getting from my Inspire.

ProdiCell Premium 1600mAH extended battery works
So, I got the ProdiCell Premium 1600mAH extended battery. Just to let you know it works once the battery is calibrated. I was concerned at first because the power drained just as fast as the 1300mAH that came with the phone. Then I realized that it stayed at 1% for a VERY long time, leading me to believe that it had power ... just that the phone wasn't giving me the right information. Probably because it is trying to estimate the power availability using the old battery information. I don't know if this is coincidence because I went through a couple of charges, or because I rooted my phone and chose the option to clear battery statistics, but now the battery percentage is going down much slower. If you want to try it, go to ClockWorkMod recovery and choose to remove battery statistic after your battery is fully charged, then use it until it dies. The next time you charge it, you should have much better battery life because it's calibrated. Like I said ... I don't know if the multiple charge cycles did it, or the fact I did the clear battery statistic, but it did seem to be much better after I did that.
